Villagers & Heroes Reborn to add interiors to housing
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 July 2015, 2:30 pm
What’s better than owning a home with a garden? How about a house with an interior! Currently, Villagers & Heroes’ housing system only allows for players to interact with the building for storage as well as provides a buff. However, that’s going to change: During our recent Stream Team episode, Mad Otter CEO Damon Slye surprised viewers with the revelation [...]

How Neverwinter designs the critters that wreck you
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 July 2015, 3:00 pm
Neverwinter has an advantage in terms of enemy design, since years of Dungeons & Dragons have given it huge amounts of material to work with for new monsters, even if you disregard options like the xorn. That doesn’t mean it’s exactly easy to design new critters for the game, though, just that the hard work shifts away from figuring out [...]

Play 'Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time' on your Wii U
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 July 2015, 2:47 pm

At long last, you can play one of the best Legend of Zelda games (often considered the best) on your Wii U. Nintendo has released a Virtual Console version of Ocarina of Time for its latest TV console on the eShop, giving you an easy way to relive Link's classic time-traveling adventure without taking your dusty old Nintendo 64 (or original Wii) out of storage. You might not relish the thought of plunking down $10 for a 17-year-old game, especially if you've already bought it twice, but it beats watching a groundbreaking title fade from memory.

JXE Streams: An early, eerie look at 'We Happy Few'
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 July 2015, 3:09 pm

Drugs, check. Dystopia, check. An alternative 1960s English town with a terrifying history, check. We Happy Few ticks a lot of my boxes in its premise alone, plus the art direction seems spot-on and the characters already feel real. Take Uncle Jack for example: He's a talk-show host with a permanent smile fixed on his painted face, and he says things like, "Of course, none of us had to do anything terrible when the Germans were here. No, no. At least, I can't remember anything. Can you?" And then he laughs in a way that suggests, yes, everyone in this small English town definitely did something awful. One thing remains unclear about We Happy Few so far: How it plays. We're going to find out today live on Twitch with a super-early, pre-alpha build of the game. Even though Compulsion still has to add more AI behaviors, world-building elements, combat mechanics and other features, they've given us the go-ahead to show off the early world of Wellington Wells. Join us at 3:30PM ET / 12:30PM PT right here, on the Engadget Gaming homepage or at Twitch.tv/Joystiq.

Perfect Ten: The 10 dev stages of every new MMO class
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 July 2015, 1:00 pm
Any game with classes adds new classes over time. It’s almost axiomatic. I don’t know why absolutely every game cannot be designed with the classes that the designers want from day one, and I really don’t know why I can’t say that, look at a brand-new game, and still find myself immediately asking about when I get new classes. I [...]

Every superhero worth her or his salt knows that it’s the costume that makes the hero. Well, that and a heapload of mutant powers, high-tech gadgetry, and billionaire funding. But it’s mostly the outfit. That’s why City of Heroes spiritual successor City of Titans is putting in a lot of effort to create a spread of costumes for the game. [...]

Meddler on Quinn and Doran's Shield

The changes that briefly ended up on the PBE were exploring a version of Quinn where she'd been shifted to be more of a roaming ADC. Idea there was that we might be able to get her into a really interesting space by making her ult into a powerful out of combat mobility effect, rather than a variant combat form. That's something we're still really interested in exploring, when time permits. It's very much a 'let's see what this looks like' rather than a 'this is what Quinn should be changed to' at this point though.

Voice attack can be useful for executing multi-step commands where direct pilot/ human interaction isn’t necessary or beneficial. For example, finding the next/closest target, bringing up the weapons overview, controlling shields, diverting power to different aspects of the ship

Amazon's giving Prime members stealthy game discounts
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 July 2015, 10:49 am

Amazon Announces Set Top Video Device

Amazon is now offering game discounts in yet another effort to call seduce you to a $99 Prime membership. If you're thinking "what game discounts?", that's because the company rolled them out with little fanfare and is offering them in a rather sneaky fashion. When searching, all titles still show the regular prices for everybody. However, if Prime members carry a purchase through to the checkout page, they'll finally see the discount. And it's not just nickle and dime reductions on obscure games, as Destructoid discovered. You can find significant savings like $7 off the brand new Splatoon and a similar deal for Halo 5, which hasn't even been released yet.
